This Week’s Best of #FOAMed

Sadly, I missed posting last week's "best of" #FOAMed while working on an upgrade to TweetED's look & feel (be sure to update your app if you haven't already!). To make up for it, we're including the top tweets from over the last 10 days. Enjoy!

This Week’s Best of #FOAMed

We've got the highlights from Twitter this week, which includes some great critical care and peds-related content. We're particularly proud that two of the referenced articles were written by some of our awesome NYU/Bellevue faculty - Reuben Strayer (@EMUpdates) & Anand Swaminathan (@EMSwami). So without further ado, here are the tweets scored highest by YOU.

TweetED: FOAM For Your Phone

If you're reading this blog, it's likely that you already have a good sense of how much valuable information can be found on #FOAMed from day to day. Keeping up with Twitter can be difficult though, especially as the FOAMed movement becomes more popular and the number of related tweets continues to increase. Information overload is an issue we all deal with on a daily basis, and finding mechanisms to get to the information that is most high-yield and relevant is crucial. Twitter provides an easy way to assess the popularity (and in the FOAM world, possibly the clinical utility) of its content through the crowdsourcing functions of retweeting and favoriting tweets. This reasoning was the inspiration behind TweetED, an iPhone app that aggregates FOAMed from Twitter, helping you to find, share, and save the most useful clinical information.
